ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Since the infamous Supreme Court decision in Roe v. Wade, over 58 million babies have lost their lives.

The large majority of these innocent children did not die to save the lives of their mothers, as Planned Parenthood would like for us to believe.

In fact, according to the Guttmacher Institute, which was originally housed within Planned Parenthood Federation of America’s corporate structure, approximately 93 percent of abortions involve healthy women carrying healthy babies.

Yet, Planned Parenthood continues to insist “many demonstrable health benefits — physical, emotional, and social — have accrued to Americans since 1973.”

“The most important benefit,” Planned Parenthood explains, “was the end of an era that supported the proliferation of “back alley butchers” who were motivated by money alone and performed unsafe, medically incompetent abortions that left many women dead or injured.”

Really?

Did Roe v. Wade protect the women who were patients at Kermit Gosnell’s ‘House of Horrors’ for over three decades?

Did Roe v. Wade protect the lives of the babies born alive and murdered by Mr. Gosnell as they took their first breaths in his filthy, infested abortion clinic?

No, Roe v. Wade did not.

The reality is that Roe v. Wade was not the end of an era but rather the beginning of a fight to protect the health and safety of American women who have suffered and even died as a result of visiting legalized abortion clinics in this country.

Many supporters of abortion continue to support the procedure on the grounds that it protects women’s health, but these same supporters refuse to stand behind common-sense regulations that would actually make abortion facilities safer for women’s health.

Mr. Gosnell’s Pennsylvania abortion clinic operated without inspection for almost 20 years, and was only ever discovered to unsanitary and dangerous when federal officials entered the facility as part of a drug raid.

This is simply unacceptable.

How many unsanitary and dangerous abortion clinics have we yet to discover across this country?

We cannot afford to lose any additional lives.

It is time for abortion supporters and opponents to come together and support common-sense regulations to protect the health and lives of women nationwide as well as babies born alive in abortion clinics.
